"Born in New York in 1929, William KLEIN is one of the leading photographers of the postwar era, as well as an influential filmmaker, painter, and graphic artist. William KLEIN, whose achievement puts him on a level with Robert FRANK, Richard AVEDON, and Irving PENN, lives in Paris and is revered in Europe.
This astonishing book, selected and designed by William KLEIN himself, offers a visual survey of his long and varied career. It includes his poetic street photography of New York, Moscow, Rome, Tokyo, and Paris; his exciting fashion photography; stills and posters from his bitingly satirical films; and his graphically powerful painted contact sheets. Photo volume 'ABC' is the first comprehensive book on his work published in the United States in 20 years." (© Abrams, 2013)
